Driving actionable insight with remote connectivity
Achieve complete operation visibility with automated, continuous data from infrastructure and assets at every point of the supply chain. Ground Control delivers secure, advanced connectivity, empowering Utility suppliers with the intelligence required to orchestrate utility supply through SCADA, IoT and M2M solutions.
Mission critical data
Being able to reliably route, monitor and control resource delivery is the centre of the critical infrastructure for every Utility company. Automating control across the entire network enables companies to rapidly respond to outages, fluctuations or peaks in demand. But none of this is possible without reliable data and connectivity.
Facilitating Industrial Control Systems (ICS) is a key part of Ground Control’s mission. Our hybrid satellite and cellular solutions ensure secure and reliable transmission of data from field RTUs to distributed control or SCADA systems. Scalable and customisable, our systems enable precise measurements and near real time data aggregation.
Ground Control helps Utility companies provide a better service for their customers
Facilitate data retrieval from your networks, plants, treatment environments and customers with unreliable or limited terrestrial coverage, utilising ubiquitous satellite connectivity.
Mitigate reaching redundant capacity and further optimise utility distribution, by backhauling data from remote gateways, to drive AI and predictive analytics.
Enhance cybersecurity by securing data paths with encryption, and where appropriate, create systems completely redundant from public networks and infrastructure.
Proactive maintenance for Utility networks
Satellite solutions empowering Utilities
SCADASat and Garth Wind Shetland Islands Scotland
The SCADASat solution provides the connectivity between the wind farm and the termination point, reporting the data in real-time to effectively control the power generation. This is a crucial function to prevent power saturation at the point of termination and ensure most economic use of the power generated.
Facilitating Renewable Energy with RWE
RWE is one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies, and operates 5 hydroelectric stations in Wales, UK. This is an area of significant rainfall, which can lead to damaging and dangerous floods. But with enough advance warning, RWE can harness this rainfall and use it to supply more renewable energy to the grid. This is how satellite connectivity made that possible.
